The Symbolism of the Oak
The roots of the oak go very deep in the soil. If planted near a house, it will never damage its foundations. It is the best wood for a fireplace. Thus the oak is a symbol of depth, strength, warmth and protection. Create new meanings for deep learning using the OAK acronym: Optimism, Altruism and Knowledge suggested by the Eastern Mind would help address the current issues that our humanity faces. The papers will focus on philosophies of education, deep higher education, and a deep approach to world languages and cultures.
- The Concept of Depth in Educational Philosophy
- Educational Growth and the Semiotics of the Tree
- World Languages and Cultures in the Internationalization of the Academia
- Deep Higher Education

You might want to prefer arriving at O'Hara Airport in Chicago (ORD) rather than Dane County Airport, Madison (MSN). The reason is that transfers from ORD to MSN are often delayed. A VanGalder Bus is available for $30 outside terminal 3 and 5 to Chazen Museum, 800 University Avenue, Madison (=Terminus). Waiting for a couple hours for transfer in Chicago plus one hour flight equates three hours by bus.
Another solution is to rent a car at O'Hara Airport and drive to Madison, Wisconsin. Especially if your credit card includes insurance, it can be very affordable and useful since the location of the Conference is in Mazomanie, 30 minutes away of Madison. We reserved a 8-seats bus for the Conference for participants who need a ride, nonetheless renting a car may give you more autonomy.
